Stories from The Silent Bullet


Published January 11, 2007


Craig Kennedy is a professor at Columbia, an early adopter of the newest 1910 technology, and a brilliant criminologist. Jameson is a reporter for the New York Morning Star. Together, they fight crime!

Arthur B. Reeves was a bestselling mystery writer who wrote prolifically from 1910 until his death in 1936. (Some of his pulp stories from the thirties were apparently ghostwritten.) Reeves was hugely and unashamedly influenced by Arthur Conan Doyle. In turn his clever use of real gadgets and the latest discoveries, and many of his story devices ("I suppose you're all wondering why I called you here"), changed the mystery field forever. Some of his books were made into movies back in the 1920's, and the 1952 TV series Craig Kennedy, Criminologist was based on his stories and novels.
